Czech Republic midfielder Libor Sionko has terminated his contract
at FC København.
'A wonderful club'
The 32-year-old's decision was confirmed following training on Wednesday, with the cancellation of a contract that had been due to run until 2011. "As everyone knows, I have had extreme difficulty making it into the starting lineup in the past six months, and that has been a tough time for me," said the man capped 39 times at international level. "I must emphasise, however, that I have had a fantastic time at FCK. We have achieved some great results, and FCK is a wonderful club with dedicated fans."
Sionko joined København from Rangers FC in 2007, and scored nine goals in 54 league games, helping the club win the Danish double last season. Sporting director Carsten V Jensen said: "There were some good intentions behind the contract extension we signed about a year ago, but Libor has had limited playing time in 2009. Of course, this has been disappointing for both parties, and Sionko really wants to return to the Czech Republic. We wish him the best of luck." København take on Olympique de Marseille in the UEFA Europa League round of 32, kicking off with the home leg on 18 February.
